Upcoming Exhibition

I’m going to declare my vested interest in this blog up front - one of the exhibitors is my husband Cade who (by my own admission), is a very talented photographic artist!

In February 2010, Cade and 3 fellow artists are opening the “Immerse” exhibition in the artisan hub, Danks Street, Waterloo.

Cade will have 7 new photographic works for sale, all with his signature impressionistic style – a focus on light, movement and angles.

Cade has been exploring this style in great detail for about a year and a detailed article about his journey can be found at http://www.cadeturner.com.au/news.php by scrolling down the page and clicking the image next to “impressed with impressionism”. – It is well worth a read.

Tantalizing Tights

Ok, I know we’ve been in a 40 degree heat wave but I came across this fantastic (and simple) DIY fashion project that needed to be shared.

Kelly, from Lions, tigers & fashion, oh my! is a blogger who I follow regularly. Kelly’s relaxed and unique fashion style mixed with her creativity for transforming clothes always provides me with endless inspiration.

A post from last month shows her transforming a pair of sheer tights into a gorgeous pair of heart leggings. Such a simple idea with some amazing results. If you don’t have a steady hand you could always use a stamp with fabric paint. All images from Lions, tigers & fashion, oh my!

A picture's worth a thousand words

I’m always amazed at the number of techniques that can be employed for a simple photograph. Even a little point and shoot camera can produce professional quality shots with a click of a button. The profile shot of me on this blog was taken on the base model, point and shoot Panasonic Lumix camera. I'm a complete novice when it comes to photography so I've set myself on a quest to find inspiration for a few basic techniques.

World renowned fashion photographer, Solve Sundsbo used interesting shadows to create these animal like prints on model Edita Vilkevicute. I'm now on the hunt for some funky shadows to try!!
A slight movement of the lens probably created the gorgeous “raining fire” chandelier display of lights in this photograph. This image looks so magical.
I love the look of a blurred background with a sharp detail in front. This was probably created by using a slightly slower shutter speed when the train went past. If the train was further away the effect could have been created by increasing the aperture size as well as slowing the speed.
